My wife and I greatly enjoyed this tour on which we were the only members . Our guide, Maria, was very personable and friendly, and patiently answered all our questions about Palermo. We saw the wonderful highlights of central Palermo as advertised in the guide, and Maria even found time to take us to a coffee shop where my wife could purchase Italian coffee beans to take home. At the end of the tour, Maria took us to an apartment used by her tour company, to cook us an excellent Sicilian lunch (the meal was so good!). She also provided us with very good Sicilian wines to taste. In addition, Maria provided my wife with several tips on cooking Italian food, which she use at home. It was a most enjoyable morning and early afternoon in Palermo, thanks to Maria.
Our guide was personable and extremely knowledgeable about Palermo history, the churches and the theatres and the monuments - just wish I could remember it all - what a great day. We loved the markets and tasting some of the traditional Sicilian treats at the different shops. As it turned out we were a group of two, so we had a wonderful experience. The traditional Sicilian lunch in the chef's private home was delightful and we talked about cooking, and recipes, and wines, and cheeses. What a great hostess. It was much more than we had expected. Would recommend to anyone.
Wow what a wonderful afternoon. We booked this activity as we were stopping in Palermo on our cruise and we were both so glad we did. Our hosts met us in a location which was easy to find and a few minutes walk from their town house. The wine and conversation flowed all afternoon interrupted only by the cheese a snacks prepared by out hosts. We would recommend this tour to anyone and the bonus is we got to take any unfinished bottles of wine we wanted away with us.
What a great idea -a walking tour in Palermo with Marialuisa! What a nice personality ... she knows the merchants in the market and the hidden treasures and byways of the city. With a good command of English, she showed a great read of our interests and physical capabilities as we made our way around this bustling, fascinating city. A highlight was the very personal meal she prepared for us in her nearby apartment at the tour's end.
Patrizoa was amazing! She took us to a beautiful home where we spent two lovely hours learning about 6 single varietal local wine - and 5 local cheeses as well as Patrizoa’s own olive oil!! Fabulous fabulous time!!!!
